Understanding "termination for convenience"

Like most business owners or representatives in Houston, you likely believe that a business partner can only terminate its contract with your company if it has cause to do so. This no doubt provides a sense of security due to the assumption that as long as you fulfill your terms of the agreement, your client cannot end it prematurely (at least without incurring penalties for breach of contract). Yet many who have had that same opinion have come to us here at The Kruckemeyer Lay Firm distressed that their contractual partners are trying to terminate their agreements simply for the own convenience. As shocking as this may sound, some organizations may indeed have that right. 

What to include in an employment contract

As the owner, manager or senior executive of a Texas business, your best bet at preventing contract disputes and similar issues may lie in crafting a strong and enforceable employment contract your workers must sign before becoming a part of your team. At the Kruckemeyer Law Firm, we recognize that carefully drafted employment contracts can prove to be a great line of defense if the relationship between your company and an employee does not work out. Throughout our firm’s history, we have helped many people navigate this and similar employment and contract-related matters.

Know when to use an NDA

If you are the owner of or an executive in a company in Texas, you will likely find yourself in situations that require you to disclose sensitive company information. You will no doubt feel hesitant about doing this but the good news is that there is a way to protect your business in these times and that involves the creation of a nondisclosure agreement.

Defining breach of contract in Texas

In business, your ability to hold partnering organizations in Houston to the agreements that your company has with them is vital. Without some measure of enforceability, there is no guarantee that the other side will not simply walk away from your partnership whenever it believes it to be in its best interest to do so. Fortunately, the penalties associated with breaching a contract often serve as a deterrent to such action. Yet when is a company or individual actually considered to be in breach of contract? That is a question many in your position have posed to us here at The Kruckemyer Law Firm over the years.
